I mostly watch porn on my desktop computer and am looking at upgrading soon. I was wondering whether getting a 4k monitor is worth investing so that I can watch 4k porn. For the investment to be worth it to me 4k porn would have to look substantially better than 1080p which I am currently watching. Take into account that I am using a fairly standard size monitor and watching from a fairly standard distance for a desktop (i.e much closer than standard tv viewing distance)

What do people think?

You can tell a difference, though it's not as noticable as going from 720 to 1080, and it is hugely dependanty on how the video is being encoded by each company.

PerfectGonzo scenes have a high bit rate and look amazing, but their scenes are stupendously big at 15GB+ per scene, you'll need a new HDD before long if you intend to download scenes.

JulesJordan scenes are between 6-8GB and are of high quality, as are the ones you find on Blacked, Tushy (and I imagine the rest of their sites).

Then you have utter garbage like Cherrypimps which clock each scene around 12GB per file, but they look awful, bad lightening, banding and grainy to the point they look barely different to their 1080 vids.

Until these companies learn to start encoding their videos properly, i'd say it's not worth it.

Well, you'll need to get more than just a monitor if you're going to upgrade to 4K. You need a new GPU that supports 4K, more RAM to handle the bigger video files, more HDD storage to keep the files, and an upgrade to Windows 10, if you don't already use that, as the older Windows does not support 4K and never will. This year is when the PC industry is transitioning to 4K, with all the new GPUs having full support for it and almost all new monitors being 4K displays with HDR of some sort, along with 4K displays on laptops. The easiest thing to do is to simply buy the best/biggest 4K TV you can get your hands on and get an Android media player with HDD housing, like the HiMedia Q10 Pro, and use that for watching your downloads after you've copied them over to the unit. As for whether or not 4K looks better, that depends on the camera, lighting, and the final video file product that is created. I've seen 4K that looks great and some that looks about the same as your average HD porn, but with greater resolution and clarity.

Yes, 4K looks much better. Substantially so.

A 4K monitor is worth investing in. I myself have an LG 27" monitor. It's a good quality monitor (~$500), although there are even better models for double the price. A good quality monitor is very, very crucial in my opinion, for quality viewing and for your eyes. 27" is an optimal size for close sitting in 4K, given pixel density.

You don't need any special graphics cards. Provided you have a relatively modern computer, the standard 'integrated' graphics chip will do. You don't need crazy amounts of RAM. Playing 4K video is not especially CPU (or RAM) intensive.

As with any video, the quality of the shoot and the file encoding are going to make a big difference in quality, but that's always going to be true. 4k really is a significant improvement.

HDR is another important feature. That is independent of 4K and basically expands the color range. There is little to no porn to my knowledge offered in HDR, but you'll benefit if you watch other movies or TV in HDR (via Netflix, for example).

The file sizes for 4K are correspondingly bigger. If you save all of your porn, you'll need more space. Personally, I only save a tiny number of scenes and mostly note scenes in a document for future reference before deleting.

Thanks for the info guys. BTW Zingerbrook I heard computer monitors don't do a particularly good job of HDR thus far. Do you know if that's true?

Wouldnt mind watching some hdr Netflix stuff.

^ A couple of points.

1) HDR is a buzzword. There are three accepted standards but HDR can literally refer to any dynamic range exceeding what most consumer displays from more than 5 or so years ago are capable of.

2) Perhaps you shouldn't ask your question on the assumption that all desktop monitors are the same - that simply isn't the case. What you should look for are indicators that the monitor in question can support HDR output. A desktop monitor capable of a 1000 nit brightness output (250-350 nit is commonplace), processing 10-bit color, replicating >95% of the P3 color space and featuring an HDMI 2.0 port would be an indication that you can get a "true" HDR output. You will find monitors with "HDR" or "HDR support" slapped on the box to make them sound more appealing to an uninitiated consumer but when you see the brightness, color depth and color space fall short of those specified before, this often suggests they can support HDR inputs only, meaning the output isn't "true" HDR as far as standards like HDR10/HLG are concerned, never mind Dolby Vision whose specifications are much higher though content is rarer. It only means such monitors interpret HDR inputs as far as the monitor can process so you will lose detail in the output where the monitor can't match either colors or brightness ranges. To determine if a monitor would do a good job of HDR, you need to REALLY pay close attention to the specifications to have a decent idea whether it can give a legitimate HDR output. For now, HDR10 is the standard you may want to aim for as it's more widely supported and adopted. Dolby Vision is technically superior in brightness, color depth and mapping tones but the file sizes are enormous and capable displays would be the reserve of oil barons, movie stars or drug lords.

(Ack...I wrote a detailed response but it disappeared. Here goes again, sorry mods if you see something twice)

- Basically, what AngryPirate wrote. I'll add that computer monitors are generally built to a higher standard than TVs, because they're designed for detailed viewing up close. HDR isn't worse on computer monitors. If anything, it's going to be better than an equivalent TV. It's just less common in monitors.

- For Netflix HDR and Netflix 4K (or Blu-ray), the monitor has to be "HDCP 2.2 Compliant" (a copy-protection standard). All HDR monitors are HDCP 2.2 compliant by definition. Some non-HDR monitors are also HDCP 2.2 compliant. It'll say on the box.

- Your computer will also need the right video ports, which are at least HDMI 2, Displayport 1.3, or USB-C. Even though porn isn't usually copy protected, you'll want one of those video ports for proper 4K anyway. The older HDMI 1.4, for example, can only do 4K in a limited way.

- No 4K or HDR from Amazon on computers, due to their copy-protection policies. Netflix will work. And of course all porn.

- I did a lot of research and window shopping before buying my new monitor. I can recommend it. It's an LG 27UL650. It has basic HDR400, which is not jaw-dropping but does make a difference. There is a similar model from Dell, but the LG seemed superior. There are even better monitors (from LG, BenQ, Dell, and others), but the prices were almost double. I felt like this was the best for the price range.

- I would not advise going bigger (or smaller) than 27"/28" for a 4K monitor. Smaller is less functional. With bigger (even 32") the pixel density is lower, and text will be less sharp. It makes a huge difference.

This is the only 4K HDR monitor worth buying at the moment, though it hasn't been released yet. Everything else is crap.

/>It will cost several thousand dollars, uses next-gen miniLED with a customized full-monitor back-lighting array that puts other monitors to shame, and supports HDR10+, HLG, and Dolby Vision with full HDR capabilities, so it covers all the bases for HDR media on computers. It will be available later this year, after Computex, where the first generation of miniLED monitors - all of which should fully support HDR - will be introduced. As for HDR porn, I doubt it will happen in the near future given how much extra effort, money, and time it costs to deal with, not to mention that it's a disaster on computers until HDR is fully standardized and the hardware/software fully supports all formats. Right now, you're better off just watching HDR stuff on a TV and not bothering with it on a computer. The next-generation web video codec AV1 supports HDR out of the box and it's free, so you'll likely see the big porn players using it in 2022 and beyond, as all new hardware will support HDR and HDMI 2.1 will be used by then.
